A method of lattice quantizing a 24-long data point to minimize storage requirements by acquiring the data point, multiplying each coordinate of the data point by the square root of 8 to form an inflated data point, finding the closest point of the inflated Leech lattice by any method, creating a signal packet, and transmitting the packet to a receiver. The receiver receives the signal packet, recovers the inflated lattice point with the aid of a table of 89 of the 4096 codewords of the extended Golay code, replaces each one in the inflated lattice point by the reciprocal of the square root of 8 of the same polarity, replaces each 2 in the inflated lattice point by 2 divided by the square root of 8 of the same polarity, replaces each 3 in the inflated lattice point by 3 divided by the square root of 8 of the same polarity, replaces each 4 in the inflated lattice point by 4 divided by the square root of 8 of the same polarity, and replaces each 5 in the inflated lattice point by 5 divided by the square root of 8 of the same polarity in order to recover the data point.Method for efficient storage and transmission of the centroids of a leech lattice quantizer608453404/07/200014/06/19992000386Postol; Michael S.US Patent and Trademark OfficeGoogle Patent Searchpatentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pages/US6084534-1.pngUniqueinflated lattice pointsquare rootpolaritydata pointsignal packetmethodleech lattice quantizerinflated data pointinflated leech lattice24-long data point
